Dropcrotch leggings look awkward as do knit cuffs on the undercover. Never got into that marbled one but there was a fellow who used to wear the pants well around these parts.

They're not legings, but they may be awkward. Part of the wonder and joy of sarouel pants. :o

What's everyone's opinion on Uniqlos' blazers? I'm thinking of purchasing it but not sure how the fit is. Is it comparable to their oxford shirt fits, in particular, in the the chest area?

^ my go to casual blazer. fabrics usually suck but cut is pretty good. fit is in line with oxfords. e.g. I take a small for both shirts and blazers. thumbs up.

I would go TTS if you are generally slimmer body build, or size up 1 if you are athletic build. The jacket has a nice cut and will fit trim. As a jacket, it will not fit as close to your body like an OCBD.


Also, from not too long ago..

I really like this casual look. (I'd change the shoes, but even they don't offend me and are kind of cool.) I particularly like the way the collar-less cardigan wears like a vest with the rounded bottom. Any ideas on where to find a cardigan that would look like this under a blazer?

Hey guys, anyone have any experience with "Michelangelo?" I think that @Parker said that one of his rad overcoats is made by them. Any info on sizing?

Michelangelo is an Isaia diffusion line, but that's all I know.

hey synth, Michelangelo is (was?) a secondary line to Isaia. I discovered them by browsing Yoox. At some point they had a look book on the main Isaia site. I have a navy blazer which is completely unpadded and unlined and light as a feather. Fit is a little boxy and it's a true 3 button -- not the usual 3R2. I also have a herringbone tweed coat which is also completely unlined, unpadded. pic below. It's one of my favorite pieces of clothing -- nice color and well made. re: sizing, I'm usually btwn a 46 and 48 I went with a 46 for the coat and 48 for the blazer.

 

I think Michelangelo is actually the name of Isaia's factory and they have subsequently rebranded this "little brother" brand to the name Eidos. There was a bit about the new creative director in Esquire awhile back. Looks a bit preppy/#menswear-y but the quality/value will probably be quite good.

Whoa. I actually really really like that. Need to figure out if a 48 will fit me ASAP ( @brad-t , do you know if that brand makes a 50 or any sizes bigger than 48 btw?)

As a follow up to this, I recently tried and returned a 3/4 length Michelangelo coat from yoox. Wool herringbone - maybe even the same one Parker has, actually - and unlined except for the sleeves. I went TTS on it, which in retrospect was maybe not a good idea. It fit quite boxy and was too "classic" for my tastes: lapels very flat; shape very straight; but the quality for the price (134$) was unbelievable, I'd say. Lovely coat, just didn't work out for me. If you're looking for something traditional (especially as a true overcoat), I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the brand, whatever its name may be now.

It's possible they make size 50 but most stores would only stock up to 48, typically. frown.gif
